Auburn limped to a 1-6 record in Nashville today with the Vanderbilt Commodores scoring their first SEC win of the season against the Tigers. Auburn may not win a SEC game this season, and Gene Chizik shouldn’t have a job come Monday because of it.
This is a hopeless Auburn football team. This team reminded me of the 1998 squad for a while, then the realization set in how talented this team really was and the comparisons flew away. Shortly after the worst Auburn record since 1951 floated into the room, and the stench appears unbearable for the Auburn faithful.
Gene Chizik is scratching and clawing for his job talking about his plan and how he is sticking to it. That may be a part of the problem, and more importantly, a concern as the plan doesn't appear to be working.
Signing a once-in-a-lifetime talent will do wonders for a career, but it won’t keep you in the driver’s seat in the SEC for long without sustained success. Chizik hasn't sustained success, and these are the reasons why his job needs to be vacant on Monday.
